    Whenever I get on the gas to accelerate or even to keep a steady speed the steering wheel shakes a lot. I have a B16 swap in my 91 CRX and was wondering what would cause this? The hubs? bearings? knuckles? if it is any of this what car would I buy them for?

    Thank you.

    either a bad bearing, or it's out of alignment.

    its prob a bearing, but also make sure you have the right mounts for your swap, if the motor sits crooked it can cause havok on your ride...

    also check your tie rods

    Try inserts that partially fixed it for me, hopefully the spindles and hubs will do the rest. Ha Ha

    Since I do have the swap, what hubs do I buy? Integra or CRX si? I didnt do this swap, the car was bought with the swap, so Im not sure what axles he used and all. He told me he use integras, but he didnt seem to know jack about the swap.

    Depends if you have teg hubs or crx hubs. If you car was an Si or Dx there's a 99% chance your hubs are CRX, if it was an HF, there's about a 50-50 chance that they are CRX or Teg. I'm running teg hubs on my crx hf (larger than stock brakes, OH yeah!)

    ohhhh ok. I am pretty sure I had CRX hubs then, cuz I just bought new calipers and rotors no to long ago and they fit fine. Bought them for a 91 Si.

    I'd check alignment and tire balance first.

    good luck
